Question by ihaveseen: How can I use my printer and set it up to print from the Internet with my Playstation 3?
I have the right Printer, and I have Internet but I have no PC/Computer. Can I print from the Internet with Playstation 3? If so how do I go about setting this up cause the way it is set up now I can’t print from the Internet!
Thanks for your Input.
I purchased a Cannon Printer which supports Playstation 3!

I don’t believe that there is any printer support in the PS3 web browser, only for photos. The only way you could really use a printer is to install Linux on the PS3 and use it as a Linux PC and get the printer working there. Good luck with that though, it is tough to get things working on PS3 Linux because it is PowerPC based and most things are compiled for x86. The slim doesn’t even support installing Linux.
Edit: the latest update for PS3 (version 3.00) did add printer support in the browser. Trying googling for “printing with ps3″ or something along those lines. It says that you have to go to File then Print This Screen in the browser. It also says:
To use this feature, you must first set up a printer by selecting Settings > [Printer Settings] > [Printer Selection] (from the main system, not web browser). So do that if you haven’t. (check link below)
